Of course, McCartney also enjoys a significant boost from his American heiress wife Nancy Shevell’s £150 million stake.

In second is the legendary theatre songwriter Andrew Lloyd-Webber with a fortune estimated at £650 million ($975 million) followed by Irish rockers U2, who’s combined wealth comes to £431 million ($646 million).
